Echinacea angustifolia Seed Propagation
Indoors: Cold, moist stratification. Start 5 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably 50 F. Add seeds to moistened sterile soil-less mix Put in zip lock bag & store in the fridge for 4-13 weeks. Then sow to plugs 1/8″ deep. Press in, light cover. Needs light to germinate. Keep moist & maintain 70F for germination within 2 weeks. When 2″ tall, harden off before transplanting 12″ apart in permanent position after risk of frost
Outdoors: Direct sow to prepared seed bed in Fall. Aim to sow 1/8″ deep. Scatter seeds, apply light cover & firm. Use mesh drop to help prevent rodent & mammal damage. Begin irrigation in about four months to maintain moisture. Once seedlings are 2″ tall or more they can be transplanted to permanent position. Alternatively, in late fall through to mid-winter sow to pots 1/8″ deep. Position outdoors where they will experience the elements of Winter. Watch for sprouts in Spring
